What are you using to drive them? Have you heard either? Both would be a decent set up. Polk puts me off some by using such small drivers. I have not compared them side by side nor with the same equipment. With that being said my impression is Polk would be a warmer sound with Paradigm being more extended and have more detail. You are the one who has to listen to them all the time and you narrowed it down to 2, so go give them a listen and buy the one you enjoy the best.

well, from my experience, the paradigms have a "fuller" sound to them, I have heard a few polks, they sound pretty good, but I ended up buying the paradigms, I also listened to the monitor 9's just for fun, they sound beautiful!

I would recomend you at leasr listen to both systems, make sure the front towers don't mess up the surround aspect of things, just my two cents :)
